PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Bryn Forbes scored a career-high 33 points, hitting a conference record 11 3-pointers, and No. 2 Michigan State woke up in the second half to rout Rutgers 97-66 on Wednesday night, handing the Scarlet Knights their 17th straight loss.

Eron Harris added 15 points, Denzel Valentine 14 for Spartans (25-5, 12-5 Big Ten), who made 16 3-pointers in winning their fifth straight game and ninth in 10. Matt Costello had 10 points and matched his career-best with 15 rebounds.

Forbes’ 11th 3-pointer was banked home and it broke the single-game record of 10 set by John Diebler of Ohio State against Penn State in 2011.

If Michigan State beats Ohio State on Saturday in its regular-season finale it will earn a double bye in the conference’s upcoming tournament and the No. 2 seed.

Corey Sanders, who was returning from a four-game suspension, had 19 points for Rutgers (6-23, 0-17).
